2021 Yukon River Salmon Summer Fishery Announcement #16 Summer Update #7, Yukon Area Salmon Fishery

Districts Affected: Yukon Area

The Chinook salmon run is more than 90% complete in the lower Yukon. The drainage-wide Chinook salmon run is projected to be at the lower end of the forecast range and is the fourth smallest since 1995. The drainage- wide run size is so small that escapement goals may not be met in many tributaries. Counts of Chinook salmon at each individual assessment project are all below average.
